7:07am
that, we're not always comfortable talking about it but i think you should be responsible for what you say. >> reporter: when you look at the video, brooks and sopoaga, perhaps no one told them the specifics about the video. we don't know. there were quite a few players who wanted to be in the video but the most intimidating players were chosen. live from daly city, tara moriarty, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. our live team coverage of the 49ers and the super bowl continues in new orleans with joe fonzi. joe, you've been talking to one of the greatest nfl players of all times. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. one of the greatest landmarks is this hotel.

7:30am
7:31am
it is 7:29. there is some confusion this morning regarding our breaking news regarding the reports of a 1-year-old girl abducted in oakland. it triggered an amber alert just after 4:30 this morning. you saw some of the highway signs that were talking about this story. investigators are now checking whether the child even exists. the first report was that a male suspect, 56-year-old kim tolefree, got into a fight with
7:32am
the girl's mother. the mother said she took the girl and tolefree crashed into them and took the child away. a home on 98th avenue is the last location of kim tolefree considered armed and dangerous. police have now detained him but the girl has not turned up. and police are now trying to confirm that the girl exists and if so, is she missing? now, the mother said 1-year-old isaza tolefree was wearing a pink shirt with blue bears, holding an orange and yellow tigger the character blanket. we'll update you on this situation as soon as more information becomes available. brian flores is live -- will have a live report at the top of the hour. and we've learned new details surrounding an overnight fire in oakland that left dozens in the dark. claudine wong is live on nicole avenue where pg&e crews have been working all morning long to turn those light the back on. good morning, claudine. >> reporter: good morning.
7:33am
yes. new information from you from pg&e. this is 2800 nicole avenue. you can see the pg&e crews -- see that gentleman getting in that blue truck? he's getting in his truck because the work is done. they've been able too turn on power so the 40 or so residents that live here. they did that by replacing the wires. if you look up on the roof, you can see that's a good sign. power is back on. they've been without power since 2:00 this morning when the fire started. i want to give you a look at some video of when this happened because certainly pretty scary here. this is all about 2:00 this morning. he said he got his family out, called 911, took out his phone to record video of the flames. he didn't want his face shown on camera but he's pretty sure it was set on purpose. >> yeah.
7:34am
there was like a tree lit on fire. there's like a branch in the middle of the street that was already, like, lit. >> so when you looked a it -- >> suspicious. it wasn't an accidental fire. something did it. >> reporter: firefighters also think the fire looks suspicious. they have their investigator out here this morning for about 45 minutes taking a look at the scene. oakland police were out here also doing a report on what happened out here and soap that investigation is continuing. but in the meantime, if we come back out here live, there's a few things i want to show you. i want to show you the tree -- if you whattent to take a look apartment -- if you want to take a look at how hot it burned, you can see the fender in the bumper of that car, kind of burned and melted. if we come down here -- i want to walk you down the street, this is one of the reasons they think the fire is suspicious, that's because those two trees, not the only ones burnt. check out this one, that damaged the back end of this car and this is the tree that damaged the power lines that went to the building because of
7:35am
the situation of where these two fires were and how they weren't really spreading from one tree next to the other but a couple of trees down the block, that's what's making them think that someone set this on purpose and they are looking for whoever is responsible. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. 7:33. also in oakland, the independent monitor that overseas oakland police reforms, says the police department took a big step backward in the past year. the report specifically cites the police response to the occupy oakland protest. the report supports howard jordan who is trying to fire two officers and suspend 15 others for their treatment during the occupy movement. and that very same report found that two oakland police officers pointed their guns at a sleeping nine-month old
7:36am

7:37am
about him. i don't want -- >> the harbaugh brothers say the game should not be about them but rather the players and they credit the players for helping the brothers go to the super bowl. san francisco police are preparing to control the crowd and keep the piece after the super bowl. they do not want to a -- they don't want a repeat of what happened after the giants won the world series. the city will remove all trash bips so they won't be burned and -- bins so they won't be burned and police are adding extra patrols in the areas. and safeway has decorated stores with football balloons and banners. americans will spend $50 million on super bowl parties. hot sellers include tailgating staples. one safeway sold 70 cases of avocados in one day. well, a popular display in los gatos will be removed
7:38am
today. ktvu's janine de la vega is in los gatos now to talk about why the town is removing the so- called love locks from a downtown bridge. >> reporter: we're here orban -- we're here on the main street bridge. this is where all of the padlocks are. right now there's 17 of them left. there used to be a lot more. some people took a long time to do this. but sown officials said if too many people started putting padlocks, the bridge wouldn't be able to handle all of this weight and it could pose a lastarded on some of the bridge -- hazard on some of the bridge here. so that's why they are saying all of the locks must go. the locks started to appear last fall one couple wanted to commemorate their 30th anniversary and wanted their names and the date on it. they got the idea from similar landmarks around the world. other couples started bringing locks to the bridge in los fat dose. it grew to nearly 30.
7:39am
caltrans owns the bridge and a sign was posted telling residents the locks will be removed and they need to remove them. some residents aren't really thrilled. >> they obviously backpacked on the -- backtracked on the whole thing. they were gonna throw them away and they said well, everyone is outraged. i think we better do something. >> i think they are all better out here. i think we should enjoy and relish in their symbolism. they are beautiful, they mean something to people. >> reporter: you can see back out here live, the signs are posted here, telling people to remove them and also that the locks will be relocated.

look like an eyesore but to other people, they see this as romantic and a sweet decoration of people's love. you can see people have put their names there with their significant other and the date. but later on today, all of these locks are gonna be cut off by the department of public works. these locks started to appear last fall when one come wanted to commemorate their wedding anniversary and have their name engraved. they got the idea from similar landmarks around the world where lovers had left locks. caltrans owns the bridge and posted a sign six weeks ago, telling people to remove their locks or they would be cut off today. the town is concerned about the weight of the locks. they say if too many people put locks up there, it could cause problems. some residents don't buy that explanation and are disappointed. one woman who has left a lock here stopped by this morning to take a picture. >> because i knew they were gonna be taken down. i wanted to make sure i got one
8:36am
more picture of it in the morning light. >> reporter: how are you feeling? you are smiling. >> i'm -- it's a bummer in a way but i'm glad it's getting some attention. i really appreciate the fact that the museum is stepping up to take the locks. i think that's a neat thing to do. >> reporter: she's talking about the plan the plan has to relocate the locks. the museum has offered to display the locks if the people remove them from the fence. there used to be 30 locks out here. this morning we counted about 17. that means those people have already taken the locks off. but sometime later today, somebody from public works is gonna come out here with bolt cutters. they are hauling them off to a corporation yard. people have until february 15th. she will pick -- to pick them up. if not, they will just be thrown away. reporting live from los gatos, janine de la vega, ktvu channel 2 news. let's go back to sal.

you are watching highway 101 and everyone else. the traffic looks pretty good around this area on 101 if you drive into san francisco. it has not been all that bad at all. northbound 101 and southbound 101 getting counsel to the airport airport -- down to the airport area. if you are driving down to the east bay, it's been crowded. we have a backup extending to -- i would say that's about ten minutes, still better than unusual. but it's become a lot more crowded. >> if you are driving in san jose, the commute looks better. 101 is still the slowest freeway. let's go to steve. >> all right. good morning. looks like most of the fog has burned off. pretty good patch in eastern napa county. a lot of haze out there. 30s, 40s to 50 on the current temperatures. so for some, it will be a nice day. for -- for others it will be a warm day. that offshore breeze, the direction the wind is coming from is still there. today, mostly sunny, patchy
8:38am
fog, hazy, warm. mostly sunny over the weekend. i think more -- more an increase in the clouds. next rain, possibility next thursday and friday, but it looks more like a colder testimony -- a colder system. what? we could use the rain. almost, tori. almost. almost. i apologize folks. this has been one brutal bug. we do have high pressure saying, you know, it's a dry pattern. i'm not going anywhere until about maybe a week out. it will weaken slightly. high temperatures will come down a little bit. i just think the increase in some of that fog, 30s, 40s to 50 degrees at the oakland airport. 50 at half moon bay already. so the coast looks like the place to be. the higher clouds are taking a direct aim. sunny, warm. a cold start. it will be a nice afternoon. a lot of haze out there. 60s, 70s on the temperatures. clearlake at 70 degrees. 64 antioch. 66 in oakland. 64 pleasanton. everyone pretty close. but a little warmer towards santa clara valley.

8:40am
yesterday, was an exciting day. they've been here for now four days. they didn't have their family. i was on the airplane with all of the children and wives. and it was such a party to see all of the children and everybody run up to them and now for the next few days, it will be a normal family atmosphere, what they are used to. they went from them being isolated. now they are here with their families, they are getting that center of gravity. i think they will go out there and they are gonna -- they are gonna do a good job because their wife is gonna drive them crazy and the babies will drive them crazy. >> bub but, what kind of add -- bubba, what kind of advice do you give them? what do you tell them to do, not to do? >> reporter: well, first of all, it will get normal. like i said at first, you have to be able to process all of
8:41am
the distractions. it's not just 49er fans here and ray ven fans. there's people from all over the world. this is an event. it doesn't actually become a football game until the whistle blow. so what they are gonna have to do is keep the internal focus on the fact that they got not a lot of distractions of the event to get -- to distract them but they have to understand when that whistle blows, when the kickoff takes place, it becomes the same football that they played since they before. if they can remember that, they will be okay. >> on the field, bubba, what's the key play type of thing you expect to win this game? what will it take to win? >> reporter: well, i think -- one of the things that we got to see is this -- both of these teams are outstanding. will colin be able to make the difference? in a close defensive battle, you have to have a quarterback that's capable of making big plays and the thing that i believe is i believe that colin has a better chance of making
8:42am
plays than flacco and because of the fact that we made that decision to go with him ten weeks ago, i -- i mean, ten games ago, i believe that decision will be the key difference that decides this game. >> bubba, you are our behind- the-scenes person. you get closer and know more about the inside than most people do. how does it feel about being there as a broadcaster, as a motivational guy? >> reporter: it's amazing. as i see the players interact with their family. i remember how it was when i didn't get to see my families for a few days. to see all of the media attention for people who don't normally get interviewed getting interviewed and to see all of these things and know they have to process it and be able to put it behind them and play a game. as a media person, i have to report the news and not make the news that i can sit back
8:43am
and observe everything happening. understanding that i'm sitting ba -- sitting back like a fly on the wall. but they are fully involved. >> i know you have to go. who is gonna win in -- who is gonna win? name a score. >> reporter: we'll beat them -- it's go -- this is what we're gonna do. i think it will be the 49ers, 21. the ravens, 14. >> all right. i got you on the record and it's a pleasure to talk to you, bubba paris, live at the super bowl in new orleans. thank you for being with us on "mornings on 2". >> reporter: thank you, dave. all right. holding that prediction. thank you. 8:41.
